Shower/tub - how to keep water off linoleum floor

We just bought a 2017 Jay Flight 26BH and it has the shower/tub combo with a shower curtain. I'm concerned about water going down the side of the tub, where the linoleum meets the tub and causing damage, lifting, etc.

I considered the possibility of sealing it with clear silicone (like caulking) but am curious if there's a better way?

Thanks!
Karen

I bought these and used silicone to install them. Took care of the problem for 7 years now

I was dealing with the same thing in our last trailer and found a thread of ideas. I took a piece of PVC quarter round trim from Lowes and cut it the length of the shower then used silicone adhesive to attach it and seal the ends. It worked great. Especially when the trailer wasn't perfectly level to where it would run around the product mentioned above.

I did seal the side and bottom when installing

I try to set the trailer up so it's about a 1/2" low toward the back wall of the tub/shower (tongue low for my 32). That helps prevent water from running out onto the floor.

I have considered a set of the splash guards that Robo linked to, just haven't gotten to that yet.

That's a great idea too - thank you!
